Escalon Community,

As many of our community members are aware, we recently asked for support for a bond measure to repair and enhance learning environments for our students. While I am personally disappointed that it didn’t pass because of the wonderful things it would have done for our kids, I wanted to reach out to everyone and let you know that I am grateful.

Our community has been so generous in so many ways. In addition to previous bonds, individual community members and organizations have stepped up and provided amazing opportunities for our students and our district is lucky to have the community support we enjoy. That support is not just monetary, it is the love and time that is devoted to our classrooms, our programs, and our sports teams.

As the district’s leader, the buck stops with me. I failed to lead a bond measure effort that successfully communicated our needs and how the resources would be applied. I’m committed to understanding where we fell short and doing whatever we need to do to increase your trust and engagement with Escalon Unified.

I am starting that effort today. Please consider participating in our post-bond survey through this link. We want to learn more about your opinion and your ideas about how we can grow from this experience. Just as we tell our students each day, failure is an opportunity to learn

As you know, we have amazing staff, students, and families. Our district is as strong as it is today because of you and we look to continuing our great community relationships in the years to come.

Thank you for your continued support of the students of Escalon.

Ron Costa
